    Call it uncanny timing, with the recent update to Apple's iPhone, but Microsoft has released software for its Zune Mp3 player that adds several new features and adds support for the new Zune HD. What's new you might be asking? Well this is what Cnet had to say

    There is a firmware update 3.20 for non HD users.

    I actually had an issue updating it, program froze, but seems to be working now.

    I fixed the post :p, I am having to download the "zune package" to get the firmware installer manually, as the software wont update mine.


    Here are directions to manually update your zune

    The HD launch must have went really well, the store and social have be sluggish for the last few days.

    I'm loving the software, it seems reponsive enough, and definately more responsive than some alternatives out there :p. But for those of you who haven't made a leap yet or want a brief overview, you should check out this video: YouTube - Zune 4.0 Software Update New Features Demo
